This Electronicaesque composed of fine cut Ambient sound imagery and IDM and Minimal House grooves does not require a huge philosophical backdrop behind each and every sonic transient. Under typical music-industrial circumstances four gloomy tracks named after Mesopotamian deities might have conjured up a lot of interpretations. But in this case we may just let the pictures arise in our audio-visual cortex without too much higher brain activity.
Though there is still some space for a little bit of brain juggling. For Danny himself 'Mount Nada' - as the EP’s title is pronounced correctly - plays with a little paradox: What exactly is a 'Mountain Of Nothing'?

Mtnada E.P by Sgnl_fltr
At first when I tried the Mtnada E.P and I wasn't so into it. I think what turned me off in the beginning was the way the audio samples felt almost too processed and the beat was so slow it had me annoyed when I heard many of the expansive movie production like sounds play back with so much unflattering distortion in them, but as I got further into the tracks I could see that this EP was meant to sound very dream or fantasy driven and that it had some good drum sounds in the tracks as you got deeper into them, but it was recorded in such a way that it sounds like it might have been inspired by dark and dystopian moods of an artistic vision. I give this EP three stars.
